Why Amos Chanda was fired

Why Amos Chanda was fired

Contrary to what he said, former State house Press Aide Amos Chanda was forced to resign after President Edgar Lungu learnt that he received money to influence the course of KCM from liquidation to receivership.

A reliable source tells us that Mr Chanda got huge sums of money to convince president Lungu not to liquidate KCM. But president Lungu’s political advisor Kaizer Zulu who was initially at the Centre of this deal but chickened out, found out and told Lungu hence resolved to fire him.

Amos then tried to use former Finance minister Alexander Chikwanda to plead on his behalf till a deal was cut that he resigns.

‘Kaizer Zulu has been telling the president that Amos has been in contact with vandeta the owners of KCM and that he has been forcing the team which the President appointed to look into the liquidation issue of KCM to overturn on the liquidation matter and go the receivership way. And some good amount was promised if that would be done. But this didn’t settle well with the boss. It’s a greedy issue,’ one source said.

‘Kaizer Zulu accepted the deal but he later u-turned and reported to the President. Hence this put Amos in a awkward position because he was the mastermind and the contact person with Vandeta,’ the Watchdog has been told.

    BETTER MUST COME 6 days ago

    These deals entered into by companies with the likes of Kaiser or their like at State House are the ones that are causing problems for the companies because if they fail to resolve the matters for which they received the money then that’s the end of the company. KCM has several outstanding issues some of which had to be decided by foreign courts! Why? Because of deals at State house. Now that the big boss (his Excellency ECL) has been told the truth, those involved are running scampering from State House as if it has caught fire. We want the truth concerning these companies and how they have been affected by State House deals. That is the reason why Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) on clinics and sports clubs has reduced. The money goes into the pockets of these crooks!

    @ Researcher, since you seem to know the truth, why don’t you spill the truth.

    who is coming to replace Amos. Isn’t Anthony or Emmanuel Mwamba or Nga’nde Mwananjiti.If the President brings Antony, state house would always be on social media coz of his drinking. Lets face it, president Lungu is known to drink, but stories have not emerged of him being cut rubbish. However if Anthony will be brought, hell will break loose, moreover though he drinks, he is currently doing fine as ambassador,and we dont get to know of his drinking. If emma is brought, there is likelihhood of the opposition suffering, the man defends in all ways. However, like Anthony being press aide can some how be a demotion. Mwananjiti is sober, but he also can be too hostile against the opposition and this one knows how to polish wrong things.I dont think we need him. I think Antony is better placed especially that the opposition will have a bit of room for he cant be like the other two. If Emma or Nga’nde will be put i will cry,they can die defending wrong things

    Thieves always have challenges when it comes to sharing their spoils! It in fact is the source of break-away factions, “greediness and self centredness” there is no thief who practices fairness, never. Zambia will soon be irretrievable mess just like Zimbabwe if these criminals are removed from power! Amos has no sympathy from anyone because the chap had become big headed to an extent of engaging in active politics while in the civil service! You reap what you sow and those that are stealing public resources, apart from sorting each other, the law will sort them out nicely and squarely and their end will be miserably shameful!

    Blank or not blank, the Vedanta issue has been mishandled from the start, to start with the team that was constituted (Amos Chanda, Keiser Zulu etc) does not have the capacity to handle such a complex matter because of their credentials, and from the start I said this issue was going to end badly just by looking at the composition of the people that was put together to champion what many would say was a noble cause especially with the bragging of the owner of vedanta over how he cheated the Zambians, Just watch this space if that composition is not changed, worse things are yet to come at KCM, the problem we have in this government is that they avoid listening to professionals because the voice they trust is of cadres and that is their down fall.
